Move spare from bonnet to back door

What is the best process for removing the spare from 110 bonnet and put on back door. Fill holes in bonnet or install plate on center of bonnet? Thoughts are appreciated

Keep the hood with all the bits on it.

Adds Manhood points.

and you can go back and forth as required. some class III hitch items might require you to put the tire back on the bonnet if clearance becomes an issue.

A Landie is more aerodynamic with the wheel on the bonnet

Like this?





This is with some sketchy Habor Freight extension so that the Pelican case would clear the spare tire.

When it comes to spares 2 is 1 and 1 is none. Be a man and roll with two.

3=2? ;-) Cheapest "solution" is the bonnet plate, but I'd keep the spare posts. They look cool, are versatile and functional. F-the form. My .02

all due respect it is your vehicle thus any opinion we may have is ultimately it is up to you to employ or not.

from a service stand point, I don't want to break down and having to lug that spare off and on the darn hood just to open and close hood. then is is a visibility issue, can't see the whole front end with tire on.

aesthetics, it is a conversation starter. woohoo a spare tire on the hood... look.!

practical... the rear door, open and shut with out much effort, tire stays on no fuss no muss.if you have oversized tires and wheels you can use and adaptor with out fear of blocking forward vision as you would if it was on the hood.

reality ---how often do you get a flat to warrant carrying more than one spare.

just thoughts to ponder...

I'd much rather have a plug kit and small compressor than two spares, although one spare isn't very overland chic.

Rational...probably not; practical...no; but it does evoke visions of Land Rover nostalgia...deserts, solitude, lions...you get it... Got to be worth something, right?

Exactly. This is what I do. My spare is usually on my rear Mantec but occasionally it needs to move to the bonnet.
